Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is Ian ~ can you confirm that the motor at the back is running?
OK there are three pipes that connect to the motor, one is sealed off and then you have a small one and a larger one, can you confirm that the small on is hot - you should check at lease 6 inches away from the motor if you can. Come back to me with your results.
OK just to clarify - the motor is running but none of the pipes are warm?
OK do you hear a clicking from the motor area from time to time and is the casing of the motor hot?
OK initially it looks like there is a problem with the electric supply to the compressor - do you have a multimeter as we need to establish if there is power getting to the motor?
If you had a mains tester it would help but would not be conclusive but from what you have said there is either a problem with the control board inside the cooler or else one of the sensors is faulty. In both cases you need a multimeter to check both voltage and resistance measurements.
Hardly a waste of time or money, I am here to advise what the problem is, help you confirm the case, and if within you capability talk you through the repair. If you dont have the equipment to do the job I can hardly be held responsible. This is a technical trade ~ if you shorted your house electric out how would you find out where the problem was ? You would either have the test equipment or call out an engineer. You now know where the problem lies, all you have to do is get someone to confirm which component is faulty and replace it. Something you did not know at the start of this conversation. I gave you this information on the understanding that you would pay me a small amount to help you - if I had called at your home for sure the cost would have been at least four times greater.
